Fresh update on "kansas" discussed on Face the Nation
"This is a great cause Information conditions equal housing under lessons in all 50 states in MLS number 30 30 We now go to Kansas City, Missouri, one of 10 areas in the US at the White House Corona Virus Task force is concerned about Mayor Quentin Lucas is in Kansas City. Good morning to you. Good morning. Um, I understand. Dr. Deborah Berke spoke to you on Monday and said Kansas City is a potential hot spot for rising infection's really looking at young people 20 to 29 as rising in the infection rate, what is fueling the spread? Well, we're seeing a lot of activity that has been against public health advice, not just people who have congregated in bars and restaurants, but also informal spread as we called it in Kansas City House parties of up to hundreds of people, a lot of backyard parties and a lot of folks in families and other in formal settings that aren't following social distancing rules aren't wearing masks. And that has helped fuel the spread both here and in the states around us. Now I know the White House has recommended that you bring things like capacity in bars down to 25% from where you already have it. Why haven't you done that? Over at 50% in our restaurants on DH, we have limited bars. One of the reasons that we have not limited it entirely is because we don't just want people going back out into the streets to celebrate. And this is really kind of our summer time challenge that we have folks that are congregating in large groups already in some ways and formal spread, presenting greater threats. Because none of these places were following rules. All of them have a large amount of spread. But we are evaluating, limiting both restaurants and bar capacity to avoid some of the spikes. He's on places like Houston and Phoenix in the state of Florida. So you may be doing this even though there may be an economic hit that comes with it. We absolutely are in one of the challenge that a lot of Midwestern and Southwestern cities were having is that we are surrounded by states that don't have things like mask orders that don't have some of the same social distancing and restaurant rules. We have So every rule that we impose. We're surrounded in the state of Missouri and Kansas by a number of jurisdictions that lack it, so we would like consistency of largely from the White House to help make it clearer what we need to do to stop the spread here in the central United States. What the White House is saying where amassed the White House is also saying, As we said, there, bring those capacities down on the letter you sent. I want to ask you about to the president this week, You were one of a number of mayors who asked specifically for more funding $250 billion to be given to cities of all sizes. This was not an executive orders that the president signed on. We know Deals in Congress appear to be on hold. So how is your city going to get the money it needs And at what cost? Do these cuts come? Well, right now we're just not getting it. So you're seeing a lot of deficit spending from cities. Mine has already put out millions of dollars in covert 19 response, and the impact is actually going to be two American workers. Those who work for state local county governments are going to deal with the brunt of it. We're talking about furloughs. There've been layoffs and a number of American cities and continue to have increased. I believe we will on blots of other cities have and this is hitting lots of employees. So this isn't just theoretical for us, and these are issues that are significant and in the now and so we're looking for a deal when you talk about things like really unemployment benefit extensions. That's something that lots of Kansas City and they're dealing with. So we feel like we're trying to answer a crisis moment. Where in some situations we haven't seen that response from Washington that is sorely needed here in the Midwest. So your city has delayed the start of the school year until after Labor Day. From what I understand. And you cited more funding being needed for schools. It doesn't sound like they're will necessarily be a deal to give you that money. So what does this mean for your school Children? Do you need to push back the school year even farther? Well when I was talking about White House direction before that was a question. Asked directly of Dr Berg's of should we have in person schooling or not? She differed from answering that question. And so in many ways, our school districts are trying to use the best advice possible. But you've seen lots go to a mixed virtual in person learning environment. There are some that are going right back to in person and you've seen in other parts of the country is in trouble and covert outbreaks from that. But our advices was to buy time to make sure we could have funding for things like ppd. Mask separation, social distancing. And better understand what school reopening Khun mean from an epidemiological perspective? We are not there yet. So I think we all have some grave concerns about reopening particularly time you're seeing spikes in this community. But what were you looking for? Dr Burke To tell you that she didn't like literally give you a green light. It's safe or to give you a benchmark at which you could make a decision to open or close. You know, I think it makes it both. First of all, benchmarks are always helpful. We had asked for additional information, some written documentary information that we could share with the public in places like Kansas City. We did not receive that. Although I did appreciate the call, and then I do think that frankly, every parent every teacher, everyone in America is saying Is it safe? You know, I'm a lawyer by training. I talked to doctors and healthcare professionals here. But these air calls necessarily that sometimes Mayor's may not be equipped to make or some governors..

Primary results: Kris Kobach loses Kansas Senate primary
"Primary season and in yesterday's contests, Progressive Democrats scored two high profile victories. While a conservative aligned with President Trump lost to a more mainstream Republican in Kansas. NPR's Susan Davis is here to sort through results and tell us what this might signal about November. Let's start with the Republican contest where former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach lost the GOP Senate primary to Congressman Roger Marshall today you wrote that this is a win for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. How so? Well. Marshall was McConnell's preferred candidate. The Senate Leadership Fund, which is an outside Superpac align with the leader spent over $2 million to help Marshall win. McConnell, like many Republicans believed that if Kobach had won, he would've tanked the party's chances of holding to the on to that seat in November and very likely could have taken the majority down with it. A word of caution here, though, Marshal is still not a sure bet. There's still interesting things happening in Kansas, and that race looks like it could still be competitive. And I've talked to GOP strategist who say it's gonna You know they're going to keep investing in Kansas to keep it in their column, but ultimately this is a seat that will be harder for Democrats to win and the battle for the Senate carries on.

Obituary: Herman Cain
"Herman Cain helped define the American black conservative movement. He also set the stage for trump by Philip Elliott. Herman. CAIN remembered the nineteen ninety-six moment that changed his political trajectory as clearly as any in his life. The businessman was advising Jack Kemp's vice presidential campaign and accompanied the boss to the iconic Sylvia's soul food restaurant in Harlem for an event a man in the crowd shouted out to Kane and colleagues Black Republicans, there's no such thing. The. Same Man in canes telling called them Uncle Toms. The episode. So angered Kane that when he got home from that campaign swing, he switched from a registered independent to a card carrying member of the Republican. Party and over the next quarter century, the child of the segregated south became one of the best known black Republicans in the country briefly rising to be his party's presidential front runner for the two thousand twelve nomination and remaining one of the most quotable stars in conservative media. So committed to his party's stick it in the I e host was Cain that he flew to Tulsa. Oklahoma for President Donald, trump's first return to the campaign trail after one hundred thousand US corona virus deaths despite dire warnings from public health experts at that endure rally on June twentieth the stage four colon cancer survivor posed for pictures without wearing a mask and sat in the packed stands with fellow fans of the president on June twenty-ninth Cain tested positive for the corona virus. On July second, his aides announced he had been hospitalized while fighting the disease his twitter account continued to criticize mask wearing and to promote unproven endorsements of hydroxy. On. July. Thirtieth CAIN aides announced he had died from the White House trump attributed the death to the thing called the virus cain among the most prominent Americans to die during this pandemic who was seventy four In many ways, Kane and trump were cut from the same cloth neither had been elected to any political post before running for the White House, both delighted in needling the Republican Party's establishment and the mainstream press they shot from the hip campaigned in slogans and didn't much care to learn the details. Both men were dogged by allegations of sexual affairs and inappropriate behavior, and both denied the allegations they proved disqualifying for Kane who ended his bid in December twenty eleven under intense scrutiny. But they did not derail trump just one election cycle. Later, they were also both savvy exploiters of the media. In saying things they knew would provoke outrage and thus amplify the celebrity at the core of their bids indifference toward if not hostility against what had come before was a cornerstone of their strategy, not a flaw. CAIN was born in Memphis in nineteen forty-five to a domestic worker mother and a janitor father when his dad was hired to be the chauffeur for the head of coca-cola, the family moved to Atlanta where cain would graduate from Morehouse College. He then completed his graduate studies at Purdue University after civilian service in the navy from there Kane moved from engineer to executive with Pillsbury and its subsidiaries of Burger King and Godfather's pizza where he would be its CEO. In nineteen, Eighty Eight, he oversaw Godfather's. From, Pillsbury throughout the same time yelled positions with the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. That part of his resume lead trump to consider cane for a position in his administration a move that drew dissent from fellow Republicans who were not eager to revisit the allegations against Kane for three years. Kane led the national. Restaurant Association a lobbying arm for the industry that paid settlements to at least two women who detailed canes unwanted advances. His was not a typical career in his post. CEO Years Cain became a sought after motivational speaker and unsuccessful presidential candidate in two thousand and a Senate one in two thousand four. As, the tea party movement started to organize after Barack Obama's election to the White House. Kane emerged as one of its strongest spokespeople when the twenty twelve election cycle began kane decided to run the scrappy est of campaigns focused on untrue additional travel schedule that often seemed more like a book tour than an organizing effort. His novel nine, nine nine tax plan proposing a nine percent corporate business flat tax, a nine percent personal income flat tax and a nine percent national sales tax drew I rolls from economists but curiosity from voters. Antipathy toward front runner Mitt Romney proved sufficient to give cain a chance to rise in the late summer and fall of twenty eleven until his personal life just proved too much. But he didn't shrink from podcast life. Instead he became a ubiquitous voice and reliable critic of Democrats

Interview With Gary Beeber
"Well. Hello everyone, and welcome to another podcast from frames magazine. My name is Scott Ulsan today I have the real honor and the real pleasure of talking with a member of the frames community Gary Bieber. Gary's work is most recently known to those of us on the frames. Website. For a shot called moonlight of a pool slide but his work goes well, well, well beyond all of that he's been featured his films have been featured in more than eighty five film festivals. His photographs are collected by fortune five hundred companies and shown in galleries all around the world He is a photographer of immense breadth and really really interesting depth to the content Gary. Welcome. How are you doing today? I'm doing great. Thank you. The now now is a great in intro you WanNa work for me. I'll make my next career just writing intros for people. How about that? I I WANNA start with the picture that most people have frames will know you buy and that is the picture moonlight. Now I gotTa Tell You I'm a midwestern kid I'm a suburban kid born in Kansas. City grew up in Chicago. That pool slide is as iconic for me as it is for anyone else when I I thought I was really struck. So tell tell me the story of that picture. How did IT COME TO BE? Well I This is part of a big series and every night possible a ido out on I photograph fly and the slide we we moved here. Three years ago, and the first thing I saw I had seen it because I didn't actually see the house but the first thing I saw was at full slide and that was the first thing I wanted to get rid of. And fellow while the stress strangely enough one night for the hell of it I took a picture of it. And I was just for the hell of I posted on facebook not nine what the response. Would be on the response was huge. It was the biggest response I had ever got up told that time and repeat where people responding to their own memories of pool slides or to the quality of the image or what was the response about well, the quality of the image was not fantastic because I talked with my cell phone I'm apt to do that too. But I think people responded I always think people respond to a picture because at south. Maybe. Brings. Back. Childhood memories or whatever. But. In any event I what I do as I out all the time if it's there for me as right there and it changes all the time I started do just love it and I started to See it as an art object like I started to see it as a sculpture and it changes in you know all times a year all times day and I I just I just really. I don't know. There's something about it i. think it symbolizes for me suburbia. And I. Was GonNA ask about the title why did you call it suburbia versus pool slide versus Vita versus anything else? Because to me just. At just symbolizes leaving suburbia on it doesn't. You. Know I don't know that they even really happy mate pool slides like that anymore. I don't know maybe they do but I just thought as something Why does it symbolize loud I? Mean that's just like AMERICOM. And that's what I liked about. I should tell people who are listening that. You can see this image on the frames website. You can also go to Gary's own website Gary Bieber dot. com. And see it as part of the suburbia series. It's a very simple slide. It's got a slight bend to the left as you come down but it's not one of these contemporary overly complicated deals. It's very flowing very graceful. Why? If I may on I. I didn't do a two. All am I use photoshop obviously. But I really didn't do all that much with that image with an image, I did use some lighting. and kind of a yellowish lighting on that. And it just. So happens like a couple of times a year on you get the you get the move in that position usually there's nothing the except cloud sometimes it's over that slot and got it at the right possession and I shot it I probably Shaw. Hundred pictures, white bath that night and I I really didn't have to do all that much to it, and then a Lotta Times all US duo town because I love that. but I just did pretty much a straight on color shot.

Supreme Court Victory, Progress for Native Americans
"One of the big rulings from this year Supreme Court term was mcgirt versus Oklahoma. The five to four decision declared a swath of the state near Tulsa to be part of the Muskogee creek nations reservation enforcing nineteenth century treaties the US made with the creek that landmark recognition of native American rights could lead to nearly half of the state being classified as Indian country but it also. Wrestled with questions of sovereignty on native American reservations. This is an issue that native American legal advocates Sarah dear who is a citizen of the Muskogee? Creek, nation has been working on for many years. We had a chance to speak with her following the decision Sarah. I'd love to hear your reflections on this decision as well as the broader impact. This could have for all native Americans. Well. Winning a treaty case in the Supreme Court. In twenty twenty is not what anybody was expecting. This case came about in a very interesting and unexpected way as a result of some folks who were prosecuted by home, and so they they were the champions for tribal sovereignty I. It's a very odd circumstance where you have perpetrators of crime on the one hand and celebrating their victory because it means so much for Indian country. So Sarah, you've worked on tribal law and issues of sovereignty for much of your career. Why is this such a pivotal issue for you and for Native Americans? The Supreme Court does not have a great track record with tribal issues and so when cases move their way through the federal system, you know from the district to the circuit to the Supreme Court. Feel like we're always playing defense like we're really struggling to get the issues of tribal tribal governments you know to be treated seriously, and so I think this victory is not just important for native people from my tribe are even if people from Oklahoma but to see a treaty be held up as the law of the land, the constitution requires is a tremendous lift for people all over the United States who care about tribal issues tell us more about the work ahead regarding this issue. Sure. Well, one of the restrictions that still remains on our jurisdiction over crimes is that we can't prosecute. Unless it's a domestic violence case. So that means that if a non native person commits a homicide or a sexual abuse case against a child, if they do those things and it's on the reservation, we have no power over them in terms of the criminal justice system. So one of my long term agenda items is to change that to just re restore tribes like any government can prosecute anybody who comes into our community and commits an act of violence. I'm currently sitting in Kansas right now if I went to Missouri and committed a crime, you know they could prosecute me. So why shouldn't it be the same tribes Sarah gear slightly another big topic in the news, of course, is the impact of the coronavirus across the world and we know that it has also hit native Americans particularly hard. Why is that and what kind of attention would you like to see around this issue? I'm. So glad you asked that I think the primary issue that we're seeing of course, the health disparities that already exist. Right. So we've been talking about how folks have a higher rate of of sort of vulnerabilities like diabetes or lung disease, those kinds of things, and so tribal nations suffer from those disparities as well I think it's also hearkens back right to smallpox in a way because tribal nations almost disappeared as a result of widespread adoption. Starting in the seventeen hundreds and even continuing into the Spanish flu era. In the early part of the twentieth century, you know very high death rates and so there's a sense that here's a sense of urgency about viruses that may not exist in other communities because we know we're barely here. In the aftermath of smallpox, and so we do take these things very seriously. I also think that tribal communities tend to be very small and and sort of. Close, and so that also puts our nation at risk in are like in some of our trouble cultures, you just don't. You don't knock go see grandma. Culturally like you go see grandma right and so that's been a cultural barrier and some of our communities towards the necessary necessity of isolation that's been a hard cultural thing to to deal with for a lot of native people. We're also at a time where we're seeing a movement across the nation focusing on several rights reforming the justice system. It seems like we're also seeing a lot more intersection -ality on issues that overlap for multiple groups here. Do you feel that native Americans are being heard in these broader conversations in this broader push for equality? I do I think that you know the black lives matter has really open doors for for many different issues although the the centering of of black bodies and police brutality certainly at the core, the discussions and the protests that we're having a really opening up a lot of conversations and those are conversations that native people have wanted to have on a national level and wanted to be able to. Take to a larger audience and I think we owe a debt of gratitude to black lives matter which is open. So many doors to talk about difficult historical issues and of course, that's our story right typical historical issues that that have really damaged tribal communities and so that opportunity has we've really benefited I think from other forms of activism and I feel very grateful for the work that they've done.
Members Of The Class Of 2020 Face A Brutal Job Market
"Just. A few months ago college seniors could reasonably expect to graduate into one of the best job markets in history. Now, because of the pandemic, they've graduated into one of the worst generations when members of the class of twenty twenty half landed jobs, the experience is odd NPR's Berlin reports. Twenty twenty was shaping up to be a great year for Golden. DACA, he be the first member of his family to graduate from college not only that he was the Valedictorian of his school. Morehouse College. ATLANTA. But in March, campus emptied and classes went online and then the moment he'd been waiting for commencement it was postponed I wanted to give that huge speech onstage with my family friends and loved ones who made it very possible for me to go to it came to an abrupt end been expecting rites of passage and celebration. Instead he landed in the pandemic, it's been a really difficult transition you know and it's been one that's a mocking allies with. A lot of uncertainty. A lot of self doubt. Worst of all, his grandmother who was supposed to come see him graduate passed away in their native. Zambia. Despite everything, there has been a bright spot dako landed a paid fellowship with the governor of Illinois after four rounds of remote interviews. So I'm more on the fortunate side and a lot of my classmates in other individuals across the nation are is a very challenging time to be a new college graduate through pollock is a Labor economist with the job sites Ziprecruiter. So compared with fee labor market in February before covert hit, we have seen job postings for the entry level positions most popular among new college graduates fall by seventy three percent. But even though postings have plummeted, people are still landing jobs. So even in a crisis, there are companies hiring eighteen million jobs have been posted. On ziprecruiter since covert struck, what has changed dramatically is how those new workers get hired interviews or evolving from those zoom skype calls and now to virtual video platforms where you record yourself answering the questions and then send that video in yourself. So you have no interaction with a person that all the lack of face to face human interaction that's been one constant for Danielle Kaplan she graduated this spring from the University of Iowa, and moved in with her mom it's been fine. But with a lot of activity around the house, it was tricky for her to find a quiet place for job interviews. So I, feel like my interviewer singing a different background, every single time with them. You know this is a very difficult, but as it turned out, backgrounds didn't matter. So I will be heading to Kansas City to work at a startup in. So I'm really excited about it. Kaplan's excitement is accompanied by trepidation because so much of the last few months felt unreal even disembodied. This is a huge major life transition that I'm about to undergo and it doesn't feel that way. I've been virtually meeting people. Virtually getting an apartment. So nothing feels like tangible to me all that is about to change this weekend. Kaplan will load up a rental truck and moved to a new hometown. Kansas. City. There won't be anything virtual about it.

Republicans dismiss Trump's suggestion to postpone November election
"FM. A large number of congressional Republicans openly rejected President Trump's suggestion at November's presidential election be delayed. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell suggested elections have been held through wars and depressions, and this one will happen again on November 3rd. The president tweeted this morning. He's likely to see a delay in the November election. It's what he wants. Maintaining increasing mail in voting will result in fraud. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appeared on Capitol Hill and was asked about the tweet. Having a small group of people vote by absentee ballot is very different than deciding that you're going to conduct a full in mail balloting in mail Balloting program Bazaar. Two fundamentally different beast. I'll leave to the professionals to identify the level of risk associated with that, But I also know and I saw this in my home state of Kansas when you change the voting rules in close to an election.

Seattle Mayor Believes Federal Deployments Are Part Of A Darker Political Goal
"Kinds of tensions in Seattle. Clashes between protesters and police turned violent last weekend, but Seattle's Democratic mayor, Jenny Durkin, told the Department of Homeland Security she did not want federal agents sent into her city. She later discovered a force was deployed and put on standby. Now they have left. Mayor Durkin spoke with our co host, Rachel Martin, about why she and other mayors feel these federal deployments. Part of a bigger, darker political goal. We have, like any other city. We have public safety challenges. But our public safety challenges have been made significantly worse by this president's actions in his words, the dinner in level of criminal activity. We're really deteriorated after the president started tweeting about it, and it was a subject to have Fox coverage every night. So we have seen and I've talked to mayors across the country the same thing when the president actually tweets, and it's not my words saying he's targeting death City is run by Democrats. He's openly admitted it and tweeted about it. Um And I think that that is really a chilling prospect of a president. United States, which is federal resource is for political purposes. The Department of Justice has said that there is an expansion happening right that all of this the deployment of federal agents to a variety of cities Now we're seeing Chicago Albuquerque, Kansas City now Milwaukee, Detroit, Cleveland. This is all part of so called Operation legend that this has to do with gun violence, quelling gun violence in these cities helping solve murders. This's the DOJ zone characteristic of what this operation is about. I guess I'm hoping you can clarify for me. Is this operation legend something that's happening? Adjacent, separate from from the agents that had been deployed to Portland. And for a couple of days, at least this standby force to Seattle. I actually think they're using it as camouflage. There are ongoing task force in major cities, the deal with gun violence and with gang violence and other violent crime. We had him in Seattle and I worked on him is U. S attorney I know I've spoken with the mayor of Chicago and Albuquerque, and they have a strong collaborative approach with federal law enforcement. It is very rare. If it all federal law enforcement will surge agents to a city to deal with public safety threats that are normally handled by city or state officials. Without talking to or working with local officials. You have described what President Trump is doing as being a political ploy to play his own base ahead of the election into some kind of law and order message. As as a former U. S attorney for the Western District of Washington is anything he's doing or the federal government at his behest illegal. I think it could be unconstitutional. Under the 11th Amendment. Remember, public safety is generally reserved to the states and to their cities, a subdivision of the states by our Constitution. There's also restrictions on the powers that federal law enforcement have and what they can enforce. They generally cannot room the streets of a city in enforce city or state law. But the other thing I will say, though it is unprecedented for federal authorities to take this level of approach for local jurisdictions in cities and Serge Federal resource is in them to take over public safety duties like arresting people. Police protesters. And I've said it before. I know some people think it's it sounds overdramatic, but to me, it looks like a dry run for martial law. And if we see these kinds of federal agents put into places where there's voting right concerns I'm very concerned about what it could do to suppress the vote in America. Say more about that. You're worried that in places where there might be concerns about whether or not people get access to the polls, right? I mean, if you look at it now, the places that that they're sending these Federal agents are primarily in places where there are significant protests against police violence and for racial equity. And it doesn't take much of a lead to also used those agents to say You're protecting the poles but have federal agents in and around polling places, too. Spite against fraud when really a suppression? I think we need a very clear commitment in advance of the election that general law enforcement are not going to be used as some kind of super police. In key battleground states in around you places. You've been talking with different mayor's around the country. Your counterparts in different states. Is that the kind of thing that has come up in conversation with them it has come up. I will tell you were focused day to day on dealing with the crisis in our city. But this kind of action when we feel happening in so many cities across your country, it gives all of us a grave concern is where it is. Jenny Durkan is the mayor of Seattle. We appreciate your time. Thank you for having me

Only a few members of the leagues are alive to celebrate the centennial Michigan radios, Doug Tribute spoke to the only surviving team owner and others about the legacy of the legendary leagues. In 1920 owners of independent black baseball teams from the Midwest gathered in Kansas City, Missouri. At that meeting they created the Negro National Leagues had no idea they were making history. They didn't care about making history. Bob Kendrick heads the Negro Leagues Baseball museum there, he says. Faced with segregation, black owners and players kept pushing for organized baseball. These athletes never cried about the social injustice. They went out and did something about so you won't let me play with you and I create my own And they did today. Stars like Josh Gibson, Buck Leonard and Satchel Paige are enshrined in the Baseball Hall of Fame, but thousands of black and Latino players endured bigotry and racist taunts.

But I hadn't experienced today. Sierra lives in New Jersey In 1954 he signed with the Indianapolis clowns at the age of 16. His salary was less than 5% of what white players were earning dollars a month a month, $100 a month. And I look back and say, Oh my God. Jackie Robinson played briefly in the Negro leagues. Then, in 1947 he broke baseball's color barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers in Cleveland, Larry Doby became the first black player in the American League. Coming seasons brought many more signings. But many Forbes sympathizes with the many athletes who were good enough to play in the major leagues, but never got a shot. Unfortunately, some of the good players by the time the time Came. They were too old to play. The last league folded in the early 19 sixties, the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum estimates there are about 100 former players still alive.

Yes and no I think Shanahan cost them this game in some ways. But I don't know that it's that playcalling where they didn't run the ball quite as much because you look at the actual plays in the fourth quarter was. They weren't too unreasonable. The first drive of the fourth worth quarter they ended up in third and fourteen. They have to throws a false start penalty a run for one yard on first down. So they're in second along. We always criticize coaches or throwing the ball and second along and and then third along gets even longer than Garoppolo scrambles for a couple yards the next drive in two thousand seventeen. They're on the ball. I down for five yards. Maybe you argue should have run the bond second and five that seems to be the play. People are upset about. But you actually watch the Datsun. That play or you watch the tape in that play. If you're so inclined designers had George cadle matched up against Terrell suggs. WHO's an edge rusher whose approximately forty seven years old in pass coverage? That's a great match up. You WanNa throw that matchup and there was knocked down on the next play. kiddle was opened again. The GAROPPOLO didn't see him in three recovered receiver and then on the following drive their down. They pretty much have to do the football after the two minute warning even ran the ball at the start that drive so I don't think the play calling was particularly egregious. I think China has lost this game instead with his decision making before the Fourth Quarter indicate he was coaching like he wanted to keep this game. Close instead of trying trying to score points in the first half I mentioned earlier the niners stopped the cheese. One forty eight to go. They have three times the end of the first half so they can call all the time I get the ball back and have time to dry instead. They let the clock run. She's punch they run the ball once. Let the clock run even further. Only then did they try and start moving. The ball and Garoppolo hit a twenty yard completion and then a perfect forty two yard pass kill. That was called back for what I think. It's fair to say the the questionable offensive pass interference call. What a catchy made right over Daniel Sorensen to get the forty niners field though rain? There's GonNa be a hold on the forty niners honors right here and it's only a three man rush and it's Frank Clark. Did I miss her happy to go into halftime at ten ten ten but they have been really effective. Moving the ball in profits outside of that one Garoppolo interception that to me is too conservative. That's something I I found interesting about Shanahan for awhile now bill. He's undeniably one of the most forward thinking coaches in the NFL when it comes to play calling but he does sometimes have a tendency to manage the game a little conservatively. I was reminded of the niners game against the Ravens this year at the end of the first half he mismanaged Spanish clock and they ended up having to try for a long field goal and lost twenty two seventeen they also have the second fewest attempts at converting fourth downs in the NFL this season than even through three quarters with their potent rushing attack. They didn't attempt many. Yeah absolutely I mean even through out the playoffs. This year there were moments. Were Shannahan kicked field goals or was conservative in moments. Where you'd figure hey you're rushing? Offense looks incredible. Why don't you run the football here when the packers and the Vikings can't can't stop you but it didn't come back to bite him because he wasn't playing the Kansas City chiefs in the second half of this game the niners ravaging seven point six yards per play on offense? Offense Shanahan shows to kick a field goal and fourth in two from the Kansas City. Twenty four yard line with the game tied. It was an awful call at the time knowing looks worse. Now you have to keep scoring in those moments because there's always a chance that Patrick mahomes is suddenly going to get hot and become Patrick Mahomes and you want to have as many points as as possible before that happens We saw that with the Texans. Were they feel go to make it which one nothing right or or something in that range and then of course they were down before halftime in that game. I don't know that is the difference in this game. Of course the chiefs did win by eleven but one of those touchdowns was a pretty much garbage time. Score by Damian Williams Shanahan Shanahan manages that first half situation and the fourth in two differently. This game is totally different late in the fourth quarter. And it's especially galling because Andy Reid feed his clock management his decision making was a punchline for years and years and years analytics. Andy did you got aggressive with two key. fourth-quarter Earth quarter decisions early in the game. He was facing a fourth and one from the San Francisco. Five yard line down three nothing. He even sent his goal unit out to tie the game during injury-time out there and then he changed his mind but the offense back on the field. They scored a touchdown two plays later on the next drive. He converted another fourth and one in the red zone. Andy Reid suddenly figured it out. It was such a a wonderful heartwarming thing to see and it was the difference in this game. It with Shannahan I mean I think he is a absolute flu playcalling genius and a lot of ways. But we saw this with Sean mcvay last year or Sean McVeigh was a genius but also very conservative when it came to his decision making and it came back to bite him in a close game last year and it came back to Bite Callahan today bill. I was watching from home of course so when I read on twitter that Andy was sending out the field goal unit I tweeted. I'm not not mad. I'm just disappointed. I like to think he read my tweet. And then changed his mind and while we're talking about eighty read or Analytic Sandy. Let's in prison for a bit. I mean he's one of the greatest coaches of all time. I don't think he needed to Lombardi trophy to prove that but just to do that. I mean it just. It puts all doubt. Assad he's going to be listed as one of the all-time great coaches in history whenever he wants to be done which is not anytime soon is widely beloved throughout the NFL and everyone knows how extensive his impact has been both on the game of football and on coaches and executives throughout the league. How would you say this Super Bowl in his legacy to me? So you know. It's the last thing on his resume for the hall of Fame Right. I I think he wasn't hall of Famer Anyway. But now even if you're a hater you can't deny that. Andy Reid is one of the most most important coaches in. NFL history has changed in his image since he took over as head head coach but doesn't mean Hawaiian shirts a lot of the time but people thought he was crazy when he took over his eagles head coach because he threw the ball about sixty percent of the time that was way more the league average now the entire league there was about sixty percent of the time he built the eagles into a perennial contender and a super bowl winning organization when they won with a head coach coach. who was his protege and a quarterback Nick foles who he convinced not to retire now? He's wondering what the chiefs he seventh. NFL history in regular season wins ends. He's an integral part of the NFL. Over the last twenty years I mean he's overshadowed by Bill Belichick and no. He's not bill belichick. Nobody is but this is one of the best coaches coaches in. NFL history. Now you can't deny Andy Reid he's going to get his due.

You know four years almost five years and I have yet to wake up saying I hate my fucking job so that makes me so happy to hear that you are a resilient bunch here in Kansas the city I absolutely have to say that I think is the theme of the day. I want you to just tell me you don't have to go into the Y.. But just what is what one food issue who is most pressing on your mind. These days Marisa for me as authenticity is the argument of authenticity. Drives me absolutely nuts. There's Salata perceptions of what especially with ethnic foods Mexican cuisine. There's a perception what that food should look like taste like in what it should cost. And it just drives me crazy up for X.. For example in Mexico I would say that every single state has a very very different Christine from the other I remember growing up and Sonoda then moving to Blah which is by Mexico City completely different type of food I would bring my little flour tortillas even then and my it would be my Pueblo. France would be an off like that thin and then I would tell them about Sonoran style tacos. Oh Yeah we have. We don't eat your little thin steak that Mexico City and Parola people eat like we'd like rib by you know like good steak and there were like. Yeah but we have moly okay. Well Yeah you win on the mall. We went on the steak Kinda thing and so I I think one of the things that it's just it's like what does a thin tissot really mean and we just need to be more open minded read about it really understand what takes the Labor where you're sourcing your product. There's a lot of different things that go. Go into account for me what I would like to really do this. Shift that paradigm of how people view specifically in the Mexican cuisine specifically cleaned United States with the current ratoric. So I think that there's a lot of cultural learning curves said I'd like to contribute and influence I I I watch Patty Jewish cut. I love her you know she. She's so sweet. PBS and she goes like she was is talking about you know a dish and seeing and she goes she and she flat out and midst. I had never seen it. I have never tasted in from Mexico. That's the thank thank people like us in Mexico. We do not have like you know like yeah you see the Kennedy Book Grape but every single casino so so regionally so different than even ourselves surprise ourselves oh how different it s and I would like to just explore it would be okay. Authenticity Meghan when give us one word. One sentence waste I struggle with the amount of people in our country.

I am in that business business but at the same time we recently at an event in Los Angeles last year and was a charity event for we'll Wolfgang puck and out of nowhere when we were setting up up the food. Bank arrived with boxes insulated boxes. I've never seen it before it. Charity Events and they drop them under everyone station and they said when you're done whatever's leftover goes in here and we take it to the food bank and I was like. Why can't Kansas City do this? Why doesn't every city do this when there's so much at the very least farmers market at East and the one that I'm in any way any extra product.

I looked growing up in Mexico. You get the shows like fifteen years later than everybody else and Jock Cousteau's if you're familiar with him you know his grave marine biologist and he was always on TV so alice obsessive. Being Jack Gustavo so I wanted to be an explorer pretty much. That's great. What's your your word? A hard one to figure out I would say committed. I've always finished a project if it doesn't have a list I'm a little. OCD about out doing it. But I've always wanted to make sure that the end results is what we have hopefully had talked about in the beginning. But I'm always committed to the project. The person the community whatever it is we're involved in. That's Great Beth. How about you? I would say adaptable. I mean I think I think that it kind of goes between adaptable and tenacious. And I think that for myself my path has it's been such a strange one and I never intended for the life that I have to be the one that I have and I'm also fully aware that your life can change in a matter. Her of seconds with the meeting of anyone or the turn of a coroner or a thought or a something that you listen to that changes everything and I think I think that if you're not stock in you're not ego driven and you're just present in your daily life.

It's nine at least that's what I tell myself. Chrissy might be a bad word but I kept on thinking about it. But it's scared 'cause I always think of the next step so if you're scared all the time you Kinda have to push yourself to not be scared all the time. I was a cubicle monkey for my first twenty years of my adult life and then I started the food truck with no food serving variance. So I think that fear kind of pushes me to kind of go outside the box which is an east coaster. I'm always in the box so oh to see things out of the box kind of pushes me. Do you know.

So you're okay. Hey I'm still in the tech world where you a cubicle monkey and have you ever called yourself that I have not call myself and said maybe cubicle cubicle entrepreneur because we used to trade you know like food and prank other people fake mouse and like prank people and stuff so so yeah it's okay. It's alright so we started two years ago and you know it's really interesting to hear. All the different stories here are search of food. Food was I was missing. My parents lost them. By the time I was twenty one and both of my parents got past and I Miss Mexico so much you know. My Dad was a lawyer but he loved to cook so a Chubby lawyer and I started cooking out of necessity like literally to try to you. Connect with my parents and s an adult. Now you know I was younger so it's like trying to go ahead and connect with them through food and with really weird so that's kind of how we started literally started at home and we're like. Oh maybe we could do this better if we get this type of equipment and then before we know it we had to your yet. I don't know how that happens but it happens and then you know.

"I'm your host Chris Christensen. Let's talk about Kansas Excellent. I'd like to welcome to the show John McKenzie from John. Traveler DOT COM and John has come to talk to us about Kansas Chun. Welcome to the show. Thank you for having me Chris. Glad to be here. What is your connection to Kansas so I originally am from Kansas I've lived there for about twenty five twenty six years. I grew up in a small town in the northeast part of Kansas and still have family there it. Can you see the small town or are you in the witness. Relocation called Saint Mary's so it's about halfway between Topeka and Manhattan Kansas Excellent. I'm sure there are one or two people who are listening to this show who don't have Kansas on their list of places to go. So why are they wrong why I should somebody think about going to Kansas. Kansas is one of those states that has a lot of subtle interesting kind of peculiar your sites. It's definitely a representation of Americana and the terrain is usually known as flat but it is a very diverse state and all of the interesting things seem to be lurking behind the sidelines in not on I seventy which who is most people's view of Kansas as my understanding exactly excellent. We're going to start us. There are many different places to go in Kansas that I could have steered people towards but I thought to really get a sense of what the state is about. I would start in Wichita. Which is the largest city? There is an airport there. The other place is that most people would be flying in to even get to Kansas would be Kansas City but I wanted to start with Wichita and kind of do a loop that focused more on the western part of the state okay well and we should say we've done another show on Kansas City but most of the people who live in Kansas City don't live in Kansas confusing enough. Kansas City is largely in Missouri and so that's why it is not the largest city in Kansas despite the name well it even gets more confusing because there is actually Kansas City Kansas that I think most people don't realize there are two completely separate cities and it gets really confusing because they are still considered to be the same a metro area but there is a separate city in Kansas that used to be called Wyandotte. I don't know why they changed the name just making confusing. It's in Wyandotte the county but yes the two cities are right across from each other but most of the population tends to be in Missouri or in the suburbs south of the city city of Kansas City so we're going to start in which talk yes and what are we going to do in Wichita so wichita is probably known for its aviation industry industry. That's one of the biggest things that maybe people have heard of or some reference to the wild. West but what I think Wichita is best known for our best to see in Wichita is the old town and some of those cow town references yrs old cow town museum. There is is the Arkansas' river that flows through it and I know you may be wondering why did I just say our Kansas. That's because Kansas pronounces that name name for the river while it's in the state of Kansas we still say Arkansas for the state but we say our Kansas for the river that's unique to Kansas but in Wichita there are a couple of things that of interest that people might like to see as I mentioned. There's the old town it's a replica replica of the eighteen eighties cow town and highlights farm life and what things might have been like back then. Is it a living living history museum than sort of thing yeah. It's officially called the old cow town museum I should I should be more clear because that's the official name of the museum. I'm old cow town museum. That's the museum and the recreation of the Old Town but then there's also old town which is just the the older part of the downtown so they're fairly close together. I mean Wichita is the largest city in Kansas but it is still fairly fairly compact in terms of her. What tourists would maybe WanNa see will because when people talk about Kansas being a cow town yeah. I don't think a lot of people know necessarily understand why Kansas would be known for cattle but a lot of the kettle that we're talking about here are cattle from Texas that would be driven up in the tiny early time in the old West into Kansas us to Wichita to dodge city and some of those places where they would meet the railroad and so basically there wasn't a railroad yet going down to where the cattle ranches were in Texas and so though some great cattle drives that you read about and like the lonesome dove that they they actually drive all the way up to Montana that book but basically those are driving them up to Kansas to put him on the Railroad to ship back East yes and the Chisholm trail one. I know some people may have heard from their their high school history course but that his John Wayne movie by the way so yes. That is the a cow town connection in even today. There's Kansas is known for having a lot of feedlots and cows and of course we we pride ourselves and our stakes. If you're a meat eater well and you said the thing that people know Kansas Wichita most for yeah. I think that's probably the song I was alignment for. The county isn't that where yes season Wichita Lineman. Yes Glen Campbell. That's another yeah they're in. Actually there's a lot of what I say that I know. I understand yes well. There's also a connection that that people may not not no the first pizza hut was developed in a small building on the Wichita State University campus and will there. Huh But not the Pizza Hut. There are the heads but the headquarters are no longer in Wichita but it did start there interesting. I didn't know that lots of little trivia facts about Kansas that may may no longer the history and the the people in things like that are connected to it but maybe are no no longer visible or are there so did you. WanNa start the countdown or the Old Town. I was going to hop around some of the different print things in the city and talk about just what they're so. Old Town has several. It's really more of a facades facades of buildings that are still kept up. There are a few restaurants in a nice restaurants and shops and things like that. There's lots of historical markers that talk about the various trails and the history of the cow town and things like that the old all town is mainly just for a pleasant place to be explore and walk around. It's not that big so you can do fairly quickly and if you're staying there. It's a good place to go out in the evening. One of the things that has become very very popular to see is a statue called the keeper of the Plains and it's not too far from downtown. It's probably easier to to drive there. It's on a point on the Arkansas' river where the big and Little Arkansas' rivers come together and it's become a symbol of the city it's on a native American sacred site and so they've made it into a a small park and it is a very picturesque little area. That's one thing that I would say a Wichita must see eh. I tend to be a brewery person so I would say there is the river city brewing company that is in the old town. They actually have really really good food. There's also place called the public at the brickyard and actually another thing that I should mention is the Museum of world treasures. If you're down in the old town it's a museum that houses pieces of all sorts of different history from all over the world. I think for people from Kansas. It's a good way to get a glimpse of what is in the rest of the world because they don't they're far from everything else but centrally located kid was the term that I was thinking was exactly but that might be of interest issue there to see the museum. I'm a little bit less of a museum person unless I'm in a smaller city and have time than I prefer to go around and check out. Whatever museums are there. No matter what the subject matter is but that is right there written in the old town okay and it looks like it is both a natural history museum with fossils as well as a history museum with things from various certain time periods and I don't know if some of the fossils are actually from Kansas but I will talk about some of that later because when we go further west best there will be some specific fossil museums and places to see that are related to fossils other things to see in Wichita are the Kansas Aviation Museum yet. If you are interested in the history of aircraft the airline industry is still a big employer there in Wichita and I'm not familiar at least off the top of my head with a aviation connection what aviation companies are out of Wichita. Cessna is one. I've heard of them. Okay I think Boeing was there. I believe they are no longer. Obscene Beechcraft and Bombardier and aerosystems okay actually Kansas general played important part in World World War. Two there were several air force bases that popped up in various places that served efforts until Wichita boomed at that time in large chart because of that I actually saw list of since nineteen twenty Wichita aircraft manufacturers and it's just honestly too long list to reach show so okay I well. That's interesting. I did not know that yeah. I think with a lot of these things. If somebody is particularly interested in the aircraft industry you could spend your entire time. I'm in Wichita and do different things related to that so there are several things like that in Kansas that if you're really interested in fossils fossil's than there are plenty of places to stop along the way or if you want to see certain land formations or prairie wildflowers or things like that or wild west history history is going to dabble through what is on offer to see because it's hard to really map out an itinerary without out knowing who the people that's that's kind of where I had my struggle but anyway so we're going to leave the nation buffs at the Kansas Aviation Museum them and we'll move on yes another place that I would not have thought of as being something you would want to see in Kansas but it has very a good ratings in it's called Tanisha. It's actually a huge while botanical gardens in Wichita. It's won several awards awards in its rated very well so that would be something to check out. It's Hugh are there and enjoy botanical gardens. There's also the Kansas Arboretum. This is kind of a side. It's south of Wichita about an hour and that is the Kansas Arboretum again. If you are a a outdoor plants and flowers enthusiasts than those places should be on your radar and another thing that is pretty much all over most small towns in Kansas but in Wichita there would be a large collection of them would be antique shops so so if you are in the market for going around to antique stores and seeing what you might find which has several and in particular there's a small town called Chi which is really it's a suburb of Wichita but it has some antique shops as well. Annette's just north east of Wichita just a few miles. That's an overview of Wichita. Also because it's the largest city there are more options of places to tate and things to do bars restaurants breweries to go check out there because once we leave Wichita it will will be getting a little bit more sparsely populated what I thought would be. The most logical next stop isn't too far from which thoughts about an hour or drive northwest and it's a city called Hutchison and it is known primarily for having the Kansas Cosmas Fear Space Museum. AM which is pretty much second to the NASA museum in DC it's also the location of the Kansas State Fair so if people really are into state fairs or just want to see a representation of the entire state..

"If possible to to reduce the chances of players doing it we saw high profile hold out with Ezekiel. Elliott this year that worked out for him in other one. We're seeing Melvin Gordon here. That obviously obviously hasn't worked out for him yet. Teams are looking down the road. If you're the New York giants saquon Barkley in two years could be in the exact same position Ezekiel Elliott just was and you don't WanNa be in a position from where you don't have him for training camp so it's it's another issue of control right. It's not money it's control owners. Versus players and the owners in this case are seeing some control erode because of the success of these player holdouts and the willingness of these players to engage in them and they want to do something to discourage and we talk about control. You're also talking about players now. Demanding Trades Allah Jalen Ramsey says he's sick we should acknowledge that but Adam silver's dealing with this in the NBA and he says it's a scourge scourge. How are they looking at it in the NFL well yeah if it got to the point where the that's their fear is that it turns into the NBA where players can go wherever they want but I mean I think the genie's out of the bottle here I mean players understand their value on a level that they didn't use to and they recognize their power on a level that they didn't use to and if you're a star player you have some leverage and we're seeing guys is flex it. I don't think the owners will succeed. In getting draconian penalties for holdouts put into the next day and I don't think they'll succeed in convincing star players that they have to stay put just because that's what their contracts says Dan. Thank you for joining us. I pleasure thank you. We were able to exercise some right here. Get your free right here just in case now turning into basketball Monday the NCAA level charges against the University of Kansas and it's basketball program including longtime coach bill self the NCAA says Kansas is guilty of a lack of institutional institutional control language for serious violations. Bill self came out swinging response this statement saying in part no secret that there's tremendous tremendous pressure on the NCAA to respond to the Federal Court proceedings involving college basketball in its haste and attempt to regain control the enforcement staff has created a false narrative regarding knee me and our basketball program for more we welcome ESPN senior writer Mark Schlabach Mark. We can talk about bill sells define in response the response from the school itself very much the same terms of tone absolutely seating no ground here whatsoever. What does that tell us. It's about the way they're going to approach this over the course of the ninety days they have to respond Jerry. It's clear Kansas has bill selves back. They Avid coaching staff back. I think there is some skepticism not only Kansas but other places around the country that the is actually gonNA come after a blue blood programs program like the Jayhawks in the past the enforcement staff the committee on infractions as an shown a lot of teeth when it came to the most successful programs most accessible coaches inches like bill self and I think given what transpired with North Carolina with the academic standing on the lack of penalties in that case I think it is involved in a lot of schools data coaches directors to your father. Does this speak to a strategy as you suggest that look. They're not going to touch us. We mean too much then the NCAA right now is in perhaps in historically precarious position being assaulted on all sides whether you're talking about the courts sports the FBI you're talking about if not the NCAA itself but it schools in the policies at those schools. We've got legislatures. New York and California trying to pay athletes elites is feeling perhaps on the part of the schools that the NCAA's week and we don't have to bend now but I think there's an assault on amateurism the amateurs model I think there's been a massive shift in public perception that these kids should beginning paying in some cases regardless of getting out Howard getting paid you know see where it goes with these new laws in states across the country but you know talking to coaches which is around the country. They tell me you know if rules are in place we have to follow the rules for nothing else competitive balance and I think we're GONNA you know I. I think we'll just have to wait and see is not. Nothing's GonNa come to an end anytime soon. Kansas and the other schools involved in this probably aren't going to get in front of the committee on infractions until you'll next summer or a spring twenty twenty. There's a lot of silk play out if the school continues to back him to the hilt is bill self safe here are his assistant safe bill sell safe as long as they don't get hammered aw made it clear that they're going to support him and they don't think that he was intimately involved in these payments to players. There is no proof that he was was involved. There are text messages between he and Adidas consultant. TJ Gas Nala says any real guys. You can infer what you want with with that but you know it's GonNa be interesting because it's a it's an interesting strategy by insane forces staff suggested the Adidas consultants like Tj Gas Nola were boosters for Kansas. Jayhawks attorneys are GONNA attack that argument as well and of course because of the time line here. We're not expecting any ramifications on the upcoming season for the Jayhawks expected to be one of the best teams in college basketball mark. Shaw aw we always appreciate your insights.

The two who former sprinters will be inducted November I along with the rest of the class of twenty nineteen which also includes Lisa Leslie Apollo Anton Ohno and the nineteen eighteen ninety eight. US Olympic women's ice hockey team also in the b-block today new USA Today report about the NFL and how team screen coaches for allegations ends of domestic violence or more precisely how summit failed to do so this of course against the backdrop of the League's insistence that it will hold players accountable in the post ray Rice Erin for more. We're joined by Rachel accent. She is the reporter who wrote this story and reported it for USA Today. Rachel what what is your reporting uncover about the due diligence that's taking part in the league and with individual teams certainly certainly showed that it seems to be lacking we looked into the backgrounds of NFL coaches in the league last year and we found issues with domestic violence easy easy to spot in public records and we don't did not find an excuse me a lot of due diligence on the part of the team's perfect example Schuyler Fulton who you you showed was a receivers coach for the bucks last year. He had an arrest for domestic violence. The charges were later dismissed after he completed a pretrial diversion in but the records in that case indicated multiple women expressing fear of him that he had had threatening behavior in then in two thousand sixteen exte- a few years later he was working Juku and the school there was warned about behavior that was similar to that yet when he was hired by the bucks a a few months later they don't seem to have called the coach that he worked for their and we know at least two of the women named in those records contacted as well it we're talking about. We're not just talking about a couple of examples. You wrote about several examples in your reporting again in this story in USA. Today and you ask the League you you went to Park. Have you so to speak and ask them well. What do you have to say about. These guys getting hired despite this in their backgrounds. What did they say. What was the response well. Of course we asked for Commissioner Roger Goodell he was the one who five years ago in that press conference in the wake of the where he writes case promised League would do more that it had a role to play here. They declined our interview requests for him. Ryan McCarthy a spokesman for the League told us that the vetting of coaches is entirely up to the teams they know so that they should be vetting them but how they do that there's no role for the NFL to play Brian McCarthy said I asked. Is there any sort of guidance or policy. There is not so the League has taken a very hands off approach in this area well beyond saying that it's up to the teams and they should be doing the vetting if they asked us. We'll so help them. Out was any anything else expressed about. Perhaps this isn't the way it should be done. These guys shouldn't be getting jobs in the NFL bill. Well our question was how much did they seek to know this. We don't know the answer because the team's avoided talking to us and then how did they assess it every every expert that we talked to on domestic violence including Rita Smith who is an advisor to the league said it would be best practice for these teams to seek and know as much information as they can and then they can make an assessment. Is this someone we want to be part of it. We're GONNA sation how they dealt with these issues.

"Welcome outside lines. I'm Jeremy Schaap later in the this show report on the domestic violence red flags the NFL might be missing when it comes to hiring and the NCAA takes aim at the University of Kansas but I in our big story the Washington redskins a once proud team that is now accustomed to misery this is Dan Snyder's twenty first season as the owner of a franchise that had had been one of the NFL's elite which hasn't won a home playoff game in twenty years last night. Washington fell to Owen three and was blown out by the bears the reality starting to sink in with the underperformance of a defense that was thought to be solid going into the season or not just to deepen the entire football team Jay GRUDEN. I think he's on borrowed time here in Washington a performance like this tonight on Monday night football the offense has largely been lifeless penalties the owner Dan Snyder he wants better with an owner who's extremely unpopular not coincidentally also extremely unsuccessful for what does it mean to be a redskins fan. These days Washington Post sports columnist varies for Luga has been all over the dysfunction in his latest column asks the question. What is this season even about all right bury. So will you answer that question for us now. Well I mean we can break down the specifics of a football game and why they lost on Monday night in embarrassing fashion but I think what that Owen three start gets to are the macro questions about this this franchise who should be the coach does that even matter. The Dan Snyder is on his eighth coach Jay Gruden. Should they immediately turn to a rookie quarterback who's going to be minding that rookie quarterback teaching that rookie quarterback going forward with Twain Haskins and what is the front office structure their Bruce L. and the team president has had a variety leave responsibilities with his over his decade with the team. None of it has led to success. He's fifty nine in eighty in his tenure there. I think any sort of minutia look the redskins right. Now is beside the point you need to look at the major questions about this franchise right minutia to focus on just one game like last night's blowout route but at this point in time when you look at the arc of Daniel Snyder's ownership over the last two decades are we at the neigh- deer in which would be saying something you're talking about a franchise that in midstream of one season called in an offensive coordinator to take AAC overplay calling who had been running Bingo Games at an old folks home the week before and I'm barry exactly exactly so I I think it's like it feels like they're all the time around here because as you've said it was a once proud franchise the people who are in the core of the fan base in their forties and fifties he's who were raised as Redskins fans under gibbs and Rigaud and thighs men and all that are trying to raise their kids in that way and it's not working because it's not fun to go to the to the stadium. It's not a pleasurable experience. You have very low expectations that you're going to get a good product winning product and it all turns back to the owner her who has not produced a single eleven win season in his twenty one seasons as owner. I mean it is amazing as you say Berry. It's five winning seasons in twenty seasons. That's it's three ten win seasons and two nine win seasons. He's never had a team that you could characterize as excellent. What is his is self awareness here. Does he recognize deep down. We all know he grew up is a big fan of this team does he does. He know that he's a failure. Here's an owner. It's really impossible for us to know because he is so walled himself off from the public. There's never an expression of I am the owner of this team. I care about this as much as you do fans in and more it is on me to fix it. He doesn't put himself out to say those things he does. Not Put Bruce Allen his self selected team president with a link to those glory days whose dad was George Allen the former redskins coach he he those people never expressed abreast publicly what they think the direction of the franchise is and should be they leave whoever the coach in the moment is hang them out to dry and say this is what's going on the Trent Williams hold or this is why we made this draft pick. It's really an odd odd state of affair. Here's the thing right in the NFL. The League is built built in such a way. There's no relegation like Europe. If you have a lousy record you get high draft picks. It's there's a salary cap. It's built to prevent this kind of you've continuous misery. You would think there would be a breakthrough if nothing else just through sheer luck and that's what's mystifying about it we now. It's not a small sample hillside anymore. It is the twenty first year of his ownership. They are on their eighth coach and it's what leads me to believe that anybody who's in this environment as the head coach can't be judged in the job solely on what he does here because no one has succeeded and I'm talking about Mike Shanahan two-time Super Bowl winning coach who came here and failed Joe Gibbs who had won the super bowl's here came back and couldn't get them further than they had been Everybody okay who walks in the door walks out tarnished in some fashion as you said berries for Luga just said eight head coaches to playoff wins Berry. Thank you for joining us. Thanks Jeremy and is very just mentioned the season of discontent. It's continuing for Trent Williams. It's been playing out in the media since early. June when left tackle didn't and show up for the first day minicamp by holding out. He's calling himself millions of dollars finds. Mr Earnings he was dot forty thousand dollars per day missed in training camp now his miss game checks accounting for more than six hundred thousand dollars per week when considering loss bonus opportunities through week three the overall tally climbing climbing into the four million dollar range in the meter is still running for more on Trent Williams to hold out left tackle for the Washington Redskins we welcome in our ESPN ESPN NFL insider here Dan Graziano. I thought I was going to see on the Monitor you sitting right here with what's going on with. Trent Williams. Of course there wasn't just it wasn't just money. There was surgery as well spring and you look that graphic you guys out four million dollars. Obviously this is not just about money or else you no he'd be there. Yes there's two years left on his contract and maybe he wants more but my understanding and Trent Williams and his people have been extremely quiet on this. It's been tough to get information but my understanding thing is that it's tied to that. Medical issue had in the off season. He has issues with members of the medical staff. The training staff of the team doesn't want to be a part of the organization as long as they are. Dr And he's willing to sit out until they trade him or whatever he's made a lot of money in his career. It's not like he needs this so so far he has held firm and said. I'm not going back there and that speaks with getting out in terms of the culture around the team. I mean if you have a former number one number four overall draft pick who's been that great for. He doesn't want to be there anymore for how much they need him. We watch the game last night. I mean obviously that's a tough test against the bears front but Trent Williams is one of the top four or five left tackles in the game and that may be underselling or selling him so yeah it would make a huge difference to whatever they're trying to do on offense right now be at case keenum be Dwayne Haskins talk about Dwayne Haskins plays. I'm sure they would rather have their left tackle before they do that so yeah. He's he's one of the very best players on their team and they miss him. It's nothing you were talking about holdouts of course in the NFL but it seems like the trend has been accelerating accelerating and your reporting tells us that the front offices of all these teams Park Avenue. They're getting fed up. They want to try tried to address this in a strategic way. What is the thinking now. During the current round of collective bargaining negotiations owners have proposed strengthening ranking the penalties for training camp holdout at this point. You can be fined forty thousand dollars a day for missing camp. You can find a game check for missing a preseason game. They want to make that even more severe ear..

"It's I honestly would struggle with it because you can stay and have success. You know that it's built in North Dakota state. But this is a challenge. In addition to what Trevor is your said with the money and the families, and I totally understand that. But I think there's always that that challenge of wanting to take a program that you know, it's going to be difficult. You know, that you're going up against the the Texas is an Oklahoma's every year, and and how are you going to be able to recruit guys that come in there and do it? You wanna go prove to yourself as a coach that I can get this done and know that I can take on some of the big boys and knock him off. So I I think it's a great opportunity. It's a challenge. And I think that's how he's looking at it. And I think though that when you talk about the challenge of getting Kansas state backup to nationally prominent level when you look at the recruiting you did the North Dakota state. He's got a bunch of guys in there from Florida. I mean, there's a lot of guys from the surrounding states of North Dakota Villanova was Constan places like that all that stuff is generally within the report, the recruiting footprint of Kansas state to a degree. Florida though too had that pipeline into Florida if he can get those athletes to Fargo North Dakota, he can certainly get them and more to Manhattan, Kansas. Why think he's already got a head start interesting. When you think about it, North Dakota state has more national championships in the last five years than Kansas state has conference championships in the history of the program. So we'll see how Chris climate does Kansas state. How about this this comparison, North Dakota state and Alabama? You look at it since two thousand eleven North Dakota state six national titles, Alabama with four who has the most impressive run Todd. I mean, it's gotta be Alabama. But but to the point I think it's amazing what they've done, you know, and you've got to put it on scale, obviously when you're talking about Bama, they're competing with the best of the best North Dakota state, they're competing with the the same level in in really the same opportunity for the same types of recruits. So I'm not taking anything away from North Dakota state. They've been awesome to watch. But it'd be able to do it at the highest level. Is is really the challenge. Now. It's absolutely North Dakota state. Margin forever. I mean, they've got so much in terms of depth of recruiting depth of finances depth of resources if they ever took a step back. They would be right back into thick of it really soon. Whereas North Dakota state doesn't have those kinds of resources if they take step back it's harder to build it back up. I think the consistency. There is even harder to maintain that it Alabama. All right. You sold me Trevor, you're right. North Dakota state. It's a we love that. When when we could just come to a consensus here, by the way, North Dakota state two wins away from their seventh national title in eight years, Alabama five national titles in their last nine years..
